Atlas Supermarket, located on the corner of College and 54th, closed permanently on May 11, 2002 after 55 years of service to the community.
The store was beloved by their customers and the community, mostly for the wide selection of hard-to-find items and the personal relationship the owners built with their customers. A true “gourmet” market in an era before ethnic and niche grocery stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
Atlas was best known outside of Indianapolis as the place where television star David Letterman worked for Sid as a stock boy in the 1960’s while attending Broad Ripple High School.
